Hi all,

Unbelievably, the estuary is fresher now than what we measured ten days after Hurricane Florence. Temperatures are cool and DO is high throughout the estuary. chl-a was generally less than 20 throughout the estuary except for a thin aggregation along the pycnocline at the lower stations. The dinoflagellate, Prorocentrum minimum, is famous for this and has been abundant for the last few trips.
